My Progress so far: 2000 XJ sport

It's been a long ride, but this is how far I've come, nothin' too crazy but I couldn't be happier.

Stock, got it right before the start of my senior year of high school,$3700 with 129,000 Miles on the clock.
What I told myself I eventually wanted my Jeep to look like:



Added some KC daylighters to the front bumper and that was it for a while. Then around january or february I decided to lift it, 3" Rough Country.


Baja Fogs on top

Then finally some VERY long awaited new tires, 31x10.5 Cooper STTs


How it sits now, 2 KC Daylighters on the front bumper, 2 baja fogs mounted on the roof rack, CB/PA setup, 2 12" MTX subs, 31" Coopers, 3" of lift, painted stock rims, I'm extremely happy with what I've done

Thanks man. They ride great, especially considering they're a mud tire. There is a little bit of a hum, not a lot, but enough to let you know it's still a m/t. They're siped as well so that helps out in the rail. I love 'em.

So sexy! I love black XJs. I really wanted one when I was looking to replace my 96, but I found my gray one and settled.

Well right now it's lookin' like adding another .5"-.75" of lift. Then a new rear bumper. I have the coil spacers for the front now I just need new 3.5" packs for the rear.

I need a job!

3 month bump!
Some recent shots


And my new exhaust

Due up next before I head off to school in August will be a rad. flush, possibly new u-joints in the rear, and then a rotation/alignment sometime this week.

I'll be taking out my dad's Canon EOS this week so I'll finally have some better shots other than from my phone and a point-and-shoot.
